Yes, courtesy of ex-tc Debbie moving off the SE QLD coast and giving us a blast of dry overland air. Could possibly be the first taste of "wintery" conditions this year. Probably the lowest dew points since Spring :-( It will seem like winter compared to tonight's 27C dew point.

I was reading today on Face Ache about a potential upper level low potentially a low pressure system around the 5th/6th of April. I'm not to sure where he is getting his data from. I have been following him on Face Ache for quite a while now his accuracy is probably the worst from all the people I follow on there. He often says "I'm not going to do what some of these other weather guys do on here and make any prediction blah blah blah" He then makes his prediction often taking a cheap shot at some of the other weather guys on facebook. I can tell even though he never mentions their names but I can tell it is a swipe at nitso,trav and the boys. After all that his predictions which always come out on the verge of everything happening even that late in the game are either inaccurate way to late in the game to do anything about it or stating the bleeding obvious, I wont mention who he is but enough about that I just wanted to ask people who I do trust will give an honest answer and who's accuracy I know cannot be perfect but explain to me how they drew their conclusion and it makes sense to me I mainly ask because I flew back from work in Darwin for Debbie which given the track of the big girl I had no choice to do so to be back here with my girls. Anyway I am due to fly back to work on the 5th that's why I have come here hoping you guys were all over what I read today and were already discussing it. That leaves me with a couple of questions I need to ask myself. Either (A) where it is predicted to build up is nowhere in our stratosphere and not worth mentioning or (B) it has already been discussed and I have missed it or it is being discussed somewhere else or (C) You guys have no idea what I am talking about and old mate is just running with a scenario Deity came and told him about in his asleep and he is just running with it smile
Anyway guys anything you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated. I would have thought Deb would have cooled the surface temps and sucked to much energy up to sustain something else so soon but I am a weather fanatic big time however my knowledge I would say was limited at best. Nitso and Trav and the lads I'm sure have more important things going on at the moment and you guys in here I rate just as highly so here I am. Thanks for you help fellas

Long way out yet Gazza. BOM 10 day ACCESS showing WA getting hit first and then a hint of a low forming on Sat in eastern CS. Someone else will need to speak to the other models.

What does everyone think of the closure of businesses (schools was a given logistically so not questioning this) in TSV on Monday? Was it premature? Was there ever a directive saying the CBD was closed or "locked down"? There were no evacuations as far as I could see?

What did businesses use as the trigger to close as I could not see one unless you had a logistical issue with preparation and when you are an office there is isn't much to do.

I guess decisions had to be made well in advance of the situation at hand. Townsville and even out here in CT business owners and managers had to make the decision the night before to give staff appropriate time to make plans. Remember the night before it was hitting somewhere near Ayr. CT remained in the warning almost to the end.

Safety of staff is the first concern. I don't think missing a day of business is such a big deal, considering most people stayed home glued to the box or the net watching this disaster unfold. So business would of been pretty poor I imagine anyway. Probably made money by closing.

Very impressive humidity at the airport again tonight, currently reading 29.5c, 89% RH with 27.6 Dew Point, perfect for drinking beer and not much else.

It should be enough to see us comfortably set a new record for March minimums, maybe maximums too if tomorrow is another warm one.

that DP is just massive, southerly due in later, will ruin any chance of breaking the march record again.
